What does mapping stand for?

In contrast to "de novo assembly" a "mapped assembly" is a strictly reference-guided process that comprises the comparison and derived mapping of sequence reads with a reference sequence.

If reads are found to be similar to a reference region, they are mapped on it. If reads overlap with each other, contigs may be generated as well. The mapping approach allows the study of mutation positions (e.g. SNPs) or structural variations.
